My apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere; I have been searching all over the Interweb for a definitive answer and my head is spinning.
We will be traveling from Canada to Ireland via Amsterdam (one ticket). My thinking is that, since Ireland is not part of the Schengen zone, our connection in Amsterdam is considered international-to-international - i.e. no customs/immigration until we get to Ireland (but possibly security and/or passport check in Amsterdam?) We are looking at a flight combo with a 1 hour 40 min layover in Amsterdam, which should be fine (in theory!) unless we need to do customs/immigration there.
We will have only carry on baggage, so checked baggage is not an issue.
Thank you in advance for your help!
